    Are you inviting us for lunch? We could all each bring our individual burgers or whatever on the grill/fire for our own little cook-out? Snuggling around the fire, what could beat that? :evil

    Who's gonna change my oil Saturday morning, though? :ear

    Hmmmm....maybe I'll trade a beer or two for an oil change (my oil and filter). Chuckles?
    I can change my own, but if it is cold, my tender digits will get frostbit.

    As is, that Sportster could be a BALL to ride on a good grass track. Put flat track tires on it, and it's ready to go flat tracking and would be an absolute hoot. Few bikes sound better than a Sporster that's been breathed on with speed goodies.

    Why would they go to the trouble of adding Ohlins, and then spec the parts with almost no suspension travel?

    There are DS Sportsters out there. They have 14" or longer shocks and forks with DS-worthy amounts of travel...

    :dunno

    I'd camp but it's supposed to be in the upper 20's or low 30's and I'm a pussy.

    Not too cold for me, but I don't want Chuck to look even more pussy-ish, so I won't camp. I will ride out and make noises of encouragement for those that can actually wrench stuff. I'll keep the fire up too!!!!!!

    Charlie already claimed Petey as his belly-warmer. Poor pup.....
